If you're True Blue, then we need YOU!

On April 30, Millikin celebrated the anniversary of its founding and annual giving day with our seventh annual True Blue Day! More than 1,200 alumni and friends stepped up in our hardest times to support the University we hold so dear, giving over $400,000 to Millikin University.

To congratulate and support these efforts, Dr. and Mrs. Patrick and Chris White are challenging YOU to participate in an extended True Blue Challenge! If we reach our goal of 1,515 donors giving in their honor to the Millikin Fund by June 30, they will make an additional donation of $1,515 to the Millikin Fund.
